Welcome to Whitnel Elementary School

Help Your Child Succeed in School:

School success goes hand-in-hand with good attendance!


  • Starting in kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school
  • Missing 10% (about 18 days) can make it more difficult to learn to read
  • Students can fall behind if they miss just a day or two every few weeks
  • Being late to school may lead to poor attendance

Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school and themselves. Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Good attendance will help children do well in highschool, college, and in their careers.
